In 2016, Toyota achieved another record year of North American vehicle production with 2,124,608 vehicles built at its North American plants. Production volume was up 4.4 percent over the previous year total of 2,035,028 vehicles.

Key drivers of the increase include low fuel prices, continued stability in the overall economy and strong customer demand for trucks and SUVs.

That makes more than 30 million vehicles produced in North America since 1986.

Toyota also marked milestone anniversaries in 2016 at the following manufacturing facilities:

  • Cambridge, Ontario             30 years
  • Georgetown, Kentucky       30 years
  • Princeton, Indiana               20 years
  • Buffalo, West Virginia         20 years
  • Huntsville, Alabama            15 years

And the company also broke ground for its 15th state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Apaseo el Grande, Guanajuato in November. TMMGT is scheduled to begin Corolla production in 2019.

Toyota produces 13 models in North America including: Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, RAV4, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma, Tundra, Lexus RX 350, Lexus ES 350, and Yaris and Yaris iA and directly employs more than 44,000 team members.

Toyota Motor North America CEO Jim Lentz couldn’t be prouder: “Our success is driven by the talent and dedication of the men and women who manufacture our products here in the U.S. Every part and every vehicle that rolls off the line reflects our commitment to safety, quality, value, and, above all, our passion for exceeding customer expectations.”
